Thought for Today – 02.01.15

“Choose one area of your life and push yourself just a little harder than you think is possible every day. You’ll feel better about yourself, and over time, you’ll get better at whatever it is you’re doing.”

Tony Schwartz


The Economy In Pictures and Rock and Roll

Guest Post: The Economy In Pictures | Zero Hedge.

How Rock ‘N’ Roll Can Explain The U.S. Economy : It’s All Politics : NPR.

Saturday morning, a little exercise, a lot of coffee, time to catch up on the news.  Then it dawned on me: I haven’t posted any Scary Charts in a while.  Click the first link above and feast your eyes.  Then read the article on NPR to remind yourself…

It’s only rock and roll but I like it.


How to Be Happier at Work – Start Something!

Start something. More specifically, start something outside of work.

via How to Be Happier at Work – Leonard A. Schlesinger, Charles F. Kiefer, and Paul B. Brown – Harvard Business Review.

Before you get mad at me take note of where this article comes from.  Harvard Business Review Blog Network is the source of this article.  This article reminds me of what I did several years ago.  I started something.

When I started something I had no clue what it was I started.  What I thought I started was not what I am doing today.  In other words, my original plan failed but ultimately my little business succeeded.

Take a risk.  Start something!

  What are you avoiding doing that you know needs to be done?”  We seem to have a talent for burying the truth, covering it up, distracting ourselves from it… When was the last time you took a risk in the direction of your dance?

Thought for Today – 3/28/10

People are often unreasonable and self centered

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind people may accuse you of ulterior motives

Be kind anyway.

If you are honest people may cheat you

Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness people may be jealous

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow

Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough

Do your best anyway.

For you see in the end it was between you and God

It was never between you and them anyway.

– Mother Theresa
